Due to a serious illness (or a death in the family or another cause) my academic performance was affected. What should I do?
Universities may take special circumstances into consideration when making their admission decisions. Therefore, it is important that you keep your guidance counsellor informed of your situation.
You may choose to ask your guidance counsellor to contact the admission office of each of the universities where you applied for admission directly on your behalf. The universities may require supporting documentation.
You may also wish to contact the university yourself to explain the nature of your special situation.
